During three grueling days of tough swims, the Aggies pushed through the waves and made an impressive showing at the Arena Invitational.
Freshman Madeline Talt finished 24th in the 1650 freestyle, recording a personal best. Talt’s 24th place finish was the highest for any Aggie in any race at the event.
Sophmore Bridget Bugbee and freshman Karley Troup also broke their season times in the 1650 freestyle, taking 37th and 42nd, respectively.
Several other swimmers also broke personal best times.
In the 200 breaststroke, Junior Alyssa Britt clocked in with a time of 2:25.87, and freshman Maya Sprinsock finished shortly after with 2:28.38. Both of the times were a season best for the duo.
Other season bests came from sophomore Victoria Pichay in the 200 backstroke with a time of 2:13.30. Troup also etched another season best in the 200 butterfly with a time of 2:05.74.
The outstanding number of individual achievements is exactly what head coach Barbara Jahn hoped for.
Jahn knew the competition this weekend would be some of the best in the Mountain Pacific Sports Federation, she knew her swimmers would benefit the meet.
The Aggies will take a break for Thanksgiving before returning to action Dec. 2 at the Texas Invite in Austin, Tex.
